Publishers Weekly Review

Summer Supper

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

This debut picture book by literary agent Pfeffer offers a vibrant celebration of gardening, nature's bounty, family, cooperation-and the letter S. The minimal, staccato text consists solely of words beginning with that letter, a conceit the author nimbly executes without sounding forced or monotonous. Children can identify labeled objects in the spry digital collage art by Austin (Fire Engine No. 9) and sound out a creatively alliterative sequence of verbs, adjectives, and noises as they watch a family plant a garden ("Shovel soil. Sow seeds") and sell their produce at market, where another family purchases it and works together to prepare an alfresco feast ("Sizzle, swirl, swish, sauté!"). Appearing within bands of various colors at the bottom of each spread, the large-font words are as bold and crisp as the pictures, making this a good readaloud choice. Kids (and parents) with a sweet tooth will savor an 11th-hour deviation from the story's healthy-eating theme, as a father sneakily indulges in a late-night snack: a slice of layer cake. A simple, satisfying-and ultimately sweet-offering. Ages 3-7. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Summer Supper

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

*Starred Review* On a small farm, a family plants seeds, watches the sprouts grow, and harvests their fruits and vegetables. The scene shifts to the farmer's market and then to the home of a family that buys the produce. After preparing the food, they enjoy a picnic feast with their friends, clean up, play music, dance, and turn in for the night (except for those needing a late-night snack). That sounds pleasant enough, but Pfeffer's cleverly worded text and Austin's vibrant artwork combine to make this book special. For librarians fielding preschool teachers' requests for picture books showcasing a single letter of the alphabet, here's one to remember, because every word starts with an S. Printed in big, bold letters that show up well, the main text unfolds in single words and concise phrases, beginning with Shovel soil. / Sow seeds. / Sprinkle, / sprinkle and ending with Sleepy / Snooze. / Shhh . . . / SNACK! Meanwhile, within the illustrations, more S words appear, representing thoughts, comments, and sounds. Austin's digital-collage artwork features clean lines and a profusion of rich colors, patterns, and textures that work together beautifully. With jaunty pictures that look striking from a distance, this farm-to-table picture book is a lively classroom read-aloud choice.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2018 Booklist

This charming farm-to-table picture book hits all the right spots for the younger set. Words and pictures share center stage. The book follows the farm cycle step by step, from seed-sowing and nurturing in the spring, through harvest and market in summer, and finally to a meal shared with friends and family. Graced with abundant water and sunlight, "seed" becomes "sprout," then "shoot," then "stalk." When harvest time comes around, the bounty is "snipped" and is bound for the farmers market. At the market, farmers "sell," and shoppers "sample" before choosing what to buy. At home in the kitchen, vegetables are prepped, cooked, and seasoned. Soon, everyone sits down to a lovely picnic dinner of corn, succotash, salad, and more! Using only words starting with the letter "S" for both the clipped primary text and sound effects and labels that grace the illustrations ("Sprinkle spice. / Stir salad"; "Shake Shake"). Pfeffer has ensured his story is a playful read as well as the perfect introduction to where our food comes from. Furthermore, the spare prose pairs well with Austin's bold, graphic illustrations. Austin doesn't just skillfully incorporate Pfeffer's text directly into his art; each scene is rendered in delightful detail and features numerous layers of storytelling waiting to be revealed. Vivid colors, a multiracial cast, and seamless alliteration make this book a wonderful readnot once, not twice, but again and again.
